January 2023 Aries Career Horoscope
All fired up! Until January 20, the Sun is in Capricorn, your tenth house of career and success, helping you tap into your drive to get ahead. The new year brings a lot of motivation to make progress on your goals, including the ones that sometimes feel grandiose or unreachable—not that this has ever stopped you, Aries!
But wait: Before you send out that resume or schedule face time with your boss, know that communicator Mercury is retrograde (backward) until January 18, so you might need to rethink plans, backtrack or correct course as you go. Mercury's signal-scrambling retrograde will touch your career house in particular, which could cause miscommunications, red tape and technology breakdowns around the office. Expect the unexpected—and don't assume that your emails or voice messages were received. Follow up, Aries.
This can be a weakened time for launching anything major because your ultimate message might not get across as powerfully as you hope (unless you're doing a redux with an already-familiar audience). If possible, you might wait until the retrograde ends or do a soft launch for now. You can't put ALL your plans on hold, but listen carefully to the energy. If you're meeting resistance, you're better off pausing.
On January 18, the Sun is conjunct powerful Pluto in Capricorn, a catalyzing day in your professional life. You might team up with an influential person or make a strategic, heavy-hitting move yourself. Watch out for inflated egos, though. You could be crossing paths with some VIPs who have definitely earned their velvet-rope access, and you will need to be savvy. This is no time to get intimidated—it says a LOT that you're swimming in their high-status sea. There's no need to show your whole hand yet. Hold that powerful energetic space and create a little intrigue around yourself.
